Motomachi BAZAAR

"Purchasing a necktie at Motomachi BAZAAR" is well-known in Kobe as a status symbol. This is a long-established store that specializes in neckties. The founder was doing business in Shanghai during the upheaval of the early 20th century, and being familiar with European culture and wanting to introduce it to Japan, he built the first store in 1947 in Motomachi. Even today that identity has not changed. We have been developing the "Motomachi BAZAAR Signature Collection" by carefully selecting materials that can make a good tie and a manufacturer based on the quality of their results.

■ My path to studying abroad in Japan
I began to look up to Japan after watching Slum Dunk on television as an elementary school student. That led me to study Japanese after finishing high school. This is my 5th year in Japan.

■ Current activities
Recently, I am crazy about travel! I live in Kyoto, and lately I have been entranced by Kyoto's charm after visiting various ancient sites such as Gion, Kiyomizu-dera, and Inari-taisha, and experiencing Kyoto's historic culture. I just love Kyoto! I also want to travel further afield in the future, so I am working a part-time job to save up money now.

■ Things I like about Japan
I love sakura cherry blossoms. They make me feel at peace every time I see them!
I also like the look of Japanese towns. Petals on the ground, old Kyoto machiya townhouses, pretty little flowers in front of people's homes, children and parents playing together... it is like something out of a TV drama. I love how beautiful and calming it all is.

■ My path to studying abroad in Japan
I like Japanese anime, so I decided to study in Japan after graduating high school. I attended a Japanese language school for around three months before finally coming to Japan in April 2011.

■ Current activities
I am currently working hard studying welfare. If I get the opportunity, I would also like to try my hand at the field of Japanese animation production.
